- One very long wire carries current 10.0 A to the left along the x axis. A second very long wire carries current 75.0 A to the right along the line

(y = 0.280 m, z = 0).

(a) Where in the plane of the two wires is the total magnetic field equal to zero? (along the y axis)

(b) A particle with a charge of -2.00 µC is moving with a velocity of 150 Mm/s along the line (y = 0.100 m, z = 0). Calculate the vector magnetic force acting on the particle.

(c) What If? A uniform electric field is applied to allow this particle to pass through this region undeflected. Calculate the required vector electric field.

Magnetic field of the long current carrying wire according to Biot-Savert Law is

B=μₒI/2•π•a

The desired point is separated by distance “x” from the 1st current and by distance (d+x) from the 2nd current (along y-axis).

μₒI1/2•π•x=μₒI2/2•π•(d+x),

10•(0.28+x)=75•x

2.8+10x=75 x.

65x=2.8

x=0.431 m.

(b) Magnetic force (Lorentz force) is

F=qvB sinα.

Since the motion of the particle is along the straight line, then F=0

(c) Electric field has to be applied along the direction of the particle motion (E↑↑ῡ, E↑↓ῡ)
